Comment | BackFromDagobah commented on On Bluffing

Hey Francesco,

Again, a very solid video, thanks.

I just want to point out something. It is not a big issue but maybe it will help you to not do it again in the future. On your seventh slate the final point(text) isn't showing properly.

Thanks again and keep up the good material.

How many natural bluffs does V has here? What worse hands does he bet here? What better hands then J9o folds on this runout?

And more importantly, given Hero's line, who got more nuts on this runout?

Most likely, given the bet size line, V land on river poorly constructed with very few natural bluffs or logical bluffs so ''Being quite high in your range'' is irrelevant.

Generally paired turn should decrease betting frequency overall. Here due to the nature of the runout and your ability to block so much of V's continuance range i think both of these options are viable; a) Bet smaller on turn. Mainly because a paired turn should help you bet thinner overall because it is less likely, since another K spikes turn, that V has any Kx flavour in his continuance range. b) check back if your V have a high frequency of leading on river when you check turn.

I bought 6-max 4 sizes with rake and it seems that with the 3x open size from LJ, you didn't provide the BB calling range but only the BB 3B range.

Thanks for the responses guys, i appreciate.

Hey FishPoker I'm looking to build a GTO+ Study group, hit me in PM if you are interested. I'm currently playing NL30 and will most likely move up to NL50 by mid june.

Come on SS grinders show some love, life is short.

Why do you think his range becomes stronger on a board pairing turn and also given this straight board that is favoring the pre-flop caller? His sizing turn smell fishy.

May 30, 2018 | 5:06 a.m.

Sizing don't matter in exploitative folds spot, only villain's range. When Villain's range is so strong that he can't balance properly with bluffs, the only response to his aggression is simply folding all our range to any size when we are bluff catching. Like i said, given previous action, this is not the case, Hero don't have a capped range, he has some nuts hands in his range that will allow him to call or raise this river and more importantly he is not bluff catching.

May 29, 2018 | 1:21 p.m.

To be an exploitative folds you would need to be sure that the range of your opponent is so strong and narrow that he can't find enough bluffs to balance his raising range on the river. Given pre-flop action, the board/runout and his line overall it doesn't seems like it is the case here.

Post | BackFromDagobah posted in NLHE: GTO+ Study Group

I am looking for dedicated and serious players from SSNL to set up a study group with GTO+.

I am currently a NL30 / NL50 player playing on a Canadian online poker site.

The goal of the group will be to explore the game under the magnifying glass of GTO+, share simulations and discoveries resulting from these simulations in order to build a solid strategy to climb the steps and exit the SSNL.

If you play a decent volume, have time to spend through GTO+ and are eager to improve, PM me and we should be able to put together a strong group.

The group will be trained using the Discord platform.

I'm pretty fine to be honest, Octo 16gig Ram.

I understand it won't gives me very accurate results but nonetheless it can gives a broad overall view on what the strategy could look like.

For example, in a Flop only simulation, hands that are 100% checks will very very rarely be bet more then 50% in the full simulation. So you can deduce form the results coming from the Flop only simulation that in a full simulation those hands will probably be more like 60%+ checks.

Hands that are 100% bet in a Flop only simulation will be very near that % in a full simulation.

My point being that when you don't have times to do a full simulation, a more complex one, would running a simple street simulation like this can gives enough accurate results to assume what the full strategy could look like ?

Can it be somewhat useful?

Post | BackFromDagobah posted in NLHE: Random Number Generators

Recently i watched a NLHE vid on an other sites and the coach in the video (MYNAMEISKARL) had a number generators along with his HUD. What is the software? Where can we find those? Is there generators solely made for Poker?

Post | BackFromDagobah posted in NLHE: Single Street With PIO

Sometimes when i use PIO and i want to make the simulation less CPU intensives and mostly short in time i don't simulate a full line scenario. For example i only input parameters for the flop and start the simulation. Of course this won't give me an accurate solution like it would with a full parameters solved line but i found, maybe wrongly, that it gives a pretty good estimates of what the strategy would look like in a full line scenario.

From you PIO seasoned guy is there any problem with this way of doing things?

April 8, 2018 | 11:52 p.m.

I would like to add, that i got the basic version of PIO so i can't use the preflop ranges which i paid for. Nowhere on the site it is stipulate that you need a)PIO b)The edge version.

Jan. 29, 2018 | 5:26 a.m.

I bought the 6-Max 4 size(rake). I have to say that you guys need to give more infos on the product. First you need to specify on your site that these solutions need a paid version of PIO. You need also to give screenshots about what the files looks like and how they work. There is little infos on the site about this. I'll open them in PIO and work with it and come back to give a review but i have to say that i was a bit surprised when i opened the package specifically for a 100$ product.

Jan. 29, 2018 | 1:54 a.m.

Any reviews so far ?

Jan. 23, 2018 | 9:56 p.m.

Thanks guys this is insightful.

I am not quite sure to understand why it is not relevant for deep stack play though as 67% of effective stack is 67% no matter the deepness.

Dec. 4, 2017 | 6 p.m.

By default the threshold is at 67%.

Does this mean that PIO is designing his strategy within the spectrum of 0 to 67% with his combos and bet size ?

If i put 33% as commitment threshold then i should have a very different strategy even with the same chosen bet size and ranges?

maybe this is obvious, or not, but i would like to have more clarification about this commitment option in PIO.

The overbet size on Turn should be based at the end of the day on stack depth. And all this relate properly with one of the 2 reasons we bet as defined by Janda.

Hi! Great video! Thanks. What is the name of the software that you use in the beginning of the video? A random generator?

Oct. 31, 2017 | 3:20 a.m.

I guess that the new GTO Solver with CREV will kill the bird in the egg.

Fear is an issue that need to be addressed as you'll progress in your Poker journey.

A great poker mind and player said this "All you want is on the other side of fear".

That should give food for thoughts.

If you never played live before i would suggest to be very attentive for the first hour. Just watch hands, how they are played, opens sizings, showdowns, the pace, peoples behaviours etc. Unless you have a very strong holdings i would try to feel the pace and not get too involved. There will be a lot more limping thus you'll need to make bigger iso raise sizings and bigger opens sizings as the standard 3x won't work very well. Be attentive to the standards opening size for the table and try to spot who like action and who is tight. And...AND ! Don't forget that some peoples have traveled a bit to go to the casino so they didn't make the trip to folds hands. Before bluffing think twice and find very good spots.

Before all things, have fun !

Giving sizings Turn V cuts down our options and we can't really continue with that very hand. He forces us to have a thicker range and i don't think AKo is part of it.

Post | BackFromDagobah posted in Other: 6+ Hold'em (Short Deck)

EDIT: Ok I just figured that i will not be able to have results for low straights with an ace and the hand ranking would need to be changed also.

Is there any software for 6+ Hold'em ?

Hey guys,

I'm trying to find a way to use PokerCruncher (Kind of Flopzilla for MAC) for 6+ Hold'em. What i figured is that i could removes 2-3-4-5 from the deck, all of them by using the dead cards option.

I'm wondering if there is other things that i should tweak and/or can it work at all using a software designed for a full deck ?
